-Keep bicycles locked any time the are unattended with a good "U" type lock.  Second choice would be a good casehardened padlock and cable.  Be sure the "U" lock or cable goes through the front wheel, rear wheel, and the frame and secure it to a fixed object.

Police Tip

Try and make an effort to meet the younger kids in your neighborhood.  Knowing their names and speaking to them on a friendly platform will make it harder for them to act out. It often gives the youngsters reason to pause before making bad choices.  It will also give them a feeling of community if they know everyone knows who they are.
